Caramel Corn

Doesn't taste at all like store-bought caramel corn, this stuff is awesome and habit-forming. It makes a bunch, so serve it at get togethers and parties. Tastes just as good the second day, so you can make it ahead of time.



  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch cream of tartar
  • 8 quarts popped popcorn (appx 1 cup, unpopped)


Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place popcorn in a large baking pan or cookie sheet.

Place white and brown sugar, syrup and butter in a saucepan, bring to a boil, cook and stir 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda and cream of tartar. Pour mixture over the popcorn, stir.

Bake 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Store in a covered bowl or pan, no need to refrigerate.
